A stripey (but not meant to be stripey) Cassia dress

yarn- 8 ply wool (fuschia) pink..
(now who do you think chose that colour?)

Little Boozle 2010

Notice the stripe through the body of the dress?

It would appear when I was grabbing the balls of wool at the yarn sale,
while elbowing the little old blue rinse set ladies out of the way,
it turns out that I grabbed a mix of different labelled wool which looked the same colour.
Some people (likely little old ladies with a blue rinse) might say that it served me right...

Still learning lessons as I go it would seem.

I am knitting a cardi for myself now because I then I can get away from pink yarn.
Though to be fair, I am doing Tikki's KAL
and the little goddess and I have compromised on a colour change-
red is her 2nd favourite colour.

There are a few patterns around with this ruched pattern particularly around the neckline.
I am kinda in love with it.
First my GarnStudio tunic,
now Tikki's Cassia,
soon the Madeline Tosh Tea Leaves cardigan. (yes Kate from Foxs Lane- you helped me find that one)
then Tikki's Olearia.

I am sure that I will get sick of it at some point...maybe...

The line through doesn't fuss me. Just pretend its verigated yarn. I love that you elbowed your way in to get it. I love the Cassia too.
And yay for the tea leaves. I have one sleeve to go and have been waiting three weeks for some more yarn in the post.
Which cardi is next for you?

LOL - you really wouldn't notice unless it was pointed out.
Next lesson (from experience) you need to be fanatical about dyelots as well as colour!
It looks fabulous!
